Event description

Description


Orange Sky Laundry founders

Event information

In October 2014, two best mates had a crazy idea to put two washing machines and two dryers in the back of a van, and wash and dry clothes for people experiencing homelessness.

Nicholas Marchesi and Lucas Patchett, the 2016 Young Australians of the Year, founded Orange Sky Laundry – a world-first, free mobile laundry service to assist the homeless. On a mission to improve hygiene standards, Nicholas and Lucas stumbled across something bigger and much more significant – the power of a conversation.

Come along to our first Speakers series for 2020 and learn about how a simple idea can address a ‘wicked’ community issue that drives real and meaningful change. Be inspired to think differently about how you can drive change in your role.

You’ll also hear the many stories of their friends on the street – the people whose lives they have improved through free laundry, showers and a conversation.
